In his interview with CBS's Scott Pelley (have you seen the adds touting Pelley's "integrity?"), President BO stated that if Republicans don't give up their principles and side with him on the debt ceiling issues "...Social Security checks, Disability checks, Medicare checks...may not go out on August 3rd."

Either Scott Pelley is too stupid to know better or he deliberately let this be said with no challenge.

Which do YOU think?

The fact is, deal or no deal, those checks WILL go out. They are not in danger.

Do you get that?

They WILL go out.

Raising or not raising the debt ceiling will not affect those checks...period.

And your president, with a straight face, looked at Scott Pelley and said, for all to hear, that they may not go out.

He deliberately lied.

Why do you liberals think he found it necessary to lie about those checks?

What could possibly be his reason for lying like that?

Is there some public good that is served by his lie?

Is it possible that he was stooping to a despicable scare tactic to try to force Republicans to cave?

(Note: He would not have to stoop far...he is already as close to the bottom as he could be.)

Why do you continue to support a man who would look you straight in the eye with a serious expression on his face and tell you such a lie?

You must be one with him.

Obama has lied his entire career. He was going to be the Great Unifier, he was going to be the post-racial president, he was going to end politics as usual, he was not going to engage in the politics of fear. Yet, he still has supporters.

Immutable Truth #16. There are only two types of liberals -- the deceivers and the deceived. The difficulty is telling them apart.

They are one with him Joe. If Bush had used those scare tactics against old people Pelley would have proved him wrong.
They have the money for those checks they just want another 2 trillion to piss away.

Before Obama took office, I can't remember using the word "trillion" in a sentence other than talking about astronomy.

Joe said...

the malcontent; Yeah.

LR:I'm planning a post that will gather a series of his lies in one place. Not mis-statement...out-and-out lies.

Lisa: Just like in all of the other "crises," the military, old people, sick people, etc. will still get paid. With or without a deal.

LR: Trillion is an impossible concept to wrap your mind around, isn't it?
